Regardless of what we are getting ready for... we know that this time of year we are looking and seeking for those great specials and savings!  We call it, "holiday shopping."  The business world calls it, "Black Friday" where they are able to return to the black in sales on their negative budget in the red. 

But what you won't find and may not be searching for in the ads and media is by FAR the BEST Black Friday Specials and Savings!  The God of the Bible, paints a beautiful picture for us when He says "Come now, and let us reason together," Says the LORD, "Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool" (Isaiah 1:18).  Because you and I are sinners (Romans 3:23), we are "in the red" like a deep scarlet or crimson, in the depth of our sin and disobedience to God's holy law and commandments.  We've sinned against Him in our actions, our words, and yes, even in the sinful thoughts of our heart!  Law breaking deserves punishment.  And that is what you and I deserve.

However, God writes in the Holy Bible that because of God's Son, Jesus Christ our Savior, our red, crimson sins have been covered like the white of snow or fresh cleaned wool!  That's a special you don't hear about much these days!  The world ought to be frantically searching and seeking out this special!  But it can only be found on one day, and one day only... the real Black Friday, which Christians have called "Good Friday."  It was on this day that Jesus Christ, God's Son, who alone had lived the perfect life, died the perfect sacrificial death on the cross once and for all to pay the debt for our sins and wash our sinned stain souls with His holy blood.  The result is eternal savings = our salvation in Jesus and our sure hope in the resurrection from the dead!

So as we are preparing for Christmas, let's remember WHY it is CHRIST-mas... in celebrating the reason why our Savior was born!  And let's take another opportunity to thank our Lord and Savior this THANKS-giving!

Join us here at Luther Memorial Church and School in Fond du Lac for our Thanksgiving Evening service at 6:30pm!!  Hope to see you here!
